 Joyful Hour

Our thoughtful twist on a happy hour. 

We are tired of happy hours where you absently exchange business cards. Joyful Hour is our intentional space for members, leaders, and innovators ready to learn from one another over deep conversations.

With our innovative  SPARK question cards, we deepen our insights about who we are, what we want to do, and how we are getting there through reflection and exchange of ideas.

Join us for a thoughtful toast, deeper conversation, while also building some meaningful relationships.

Mindful Mondays

Our monthly 90-minute creative seminars for professionals.

Each month, we dive into different elements of creativity at one of DC's most fascinating spaces and invite a guest speaker with expertise on that topic.

By bringing together like-minded individuals and through a mix of creative exercises, active networking, and thought-provoking speaker sessions, our program inspires creativity and innovation.

We ask questions.  We laugh.   We reflect.

The result? A group of leaders integrating creativity into their daily lives, leading to greater fulfillment, productivity, and energy for themselves and those around them. Learn how to get unstuck with creativity.

                                  Unplug

"Digital unplug" is a key to mindfulness and creativity.

UNPLUG is a special pop-up workshops for professionals who want to better understand the importance of mindfulness and unplugging in creativity, and to build creative confidence. 

By putting our phones, tablets, gadgets, and all other digital friends to sleep for 90 minutes, we explore what creativity  means in daily life, how it can play a significant role in our professional and personal growth, and how to achieve it.

We dive into the interactive exercises and discussions to deepen our insights on innovation and daily creativity. We ask questions, we reflect, and we have a lot of fun while doing it
